The IUP Small Business Development Center will present the seminar “Build Your Business” on July 27, 2011, on the IUP at Northpointe campus.
This seminar is an overview of the business and economic development assistance available through the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology's Management Services Group. The session is aimed at both businesses seeking assistance and the professionals who serve them: economic development officials, chamber directors, and business consultants, such as accountants and lawyers who could use additional resources.
The Management Services Group has historically played a significant role in growing businesses and the economy in Indiana County and across the region. Some of Indiana County’s largest employers have taken advantage of these services and found them valuable. Projects undertaken have covered a lot of ground and range from strategic planning to feasibility studies for airport expansion, marketing surveys, focus groups, quality control, product development, technology assessment, and more. The vast majority of these services are offered at no cost and utilize faculty, staff, and student teams made up of graduating seniors and graduate students.
This year marks twenty years of service for the Management Services Group, and we look forward to creating a greater impact across a wider geographic area. We have scheduled this session to spread awareness of our services and to identify several good projects.
